I live beside the cottage where I'm available for help and advice and while I respect your space, you also have the comfort of knowing that you are not totally alone on this beautiful and peaceful hillside.

Guests have access to the garden and walks in the nearby East Clare way. Also when I'm not available for Check In the guest is emailed information on how to access the cottage.
Interaction with guests
I have traveled extensively so naturally I enjoy interacting with people but I also respect their privacy, coming into your space only when invited. On winter days when you are out exploring I will light the stove for a warm return but only when I am home and available. Loan travelers have the comfort of knowing that they are not entirely alone, on this peaceful hillside and when I'm away my friend and neighbour is available to help you out if needed.
When possible I enjoy spending a day out with guests or share an evening meal but mostly it is your holiday and adventure, take the day and weather as you find it!

A born wanderer from Dublin I settled in Clare to raise my children and immerse myself in rural life and textiles. I’ve enjoyed some world travel and today I love to wander from France to Ireland and back again, walking hills and coastal paths gathering inspiration for my work and enjoying locally produced organic food, and a good read by the fire at night. I also very much enjoy welcoming people to both my homes and offering help or advice on places to visit, allowing you your space as I appreciate mine.
